May 2 Webinar: ‘Introducing the Trusted Partner Network: One Industry, One Audit’

On May 2 at 11 a.m. PT, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) will hold a webinar to discuss the Trusted Partner Network (TPN).

The webinar — “Introducing the Trusted Partner Network: One Industry, One Audit” — will take a deeper look at TPN, a new, industrywide content security initiative that helps prevent leaks, breaches and hacks of film and television content prior to their intended release and while they are being worked on by a growing, international ecosystem of third-party vendors.

A joint venture between the MPAA and CDSA, the TPN provides vendors with a voluntary and cost-saving way to have the security preparedness of their facilities, staffs and workflows assessed to industry best practices and by accredited and experienced assessors and consultants.

From script through post production to distribution, and everywhere in-between, film and television vendors will now be able to reduce the number of often-duplicative content owner audits they undergo per year, many of which are now based on contradictory security controls.

Through the TPN, it is expected that the film and television industry will elevate the security standards and responsiveness of the vendor community, while greatly expanding the number of facilities that can be assessed annually. In this closing session, you’ll learn from the executives who have developed and will manage this important industry initiative about how TPN works, the goals behind the collaboration and the benefits content owners and vendors will gain from the program.

Guy Finley, executive director of CDSA and CEO of TPN will moderate, and will be joined by Kurt Fischer, director of content security for MPAA and COO of TPN; Dan Robbins, SVP and associate general counsel of the Motion Picture Association and chairman and president of TPN; and Ben Stanbury, chairman of CDSA and CTO of TPN.
